SAN FRANCISCO, C.A. (Fox News) — Police who entered a California man’s house for a probation check, found a $100,000 stash of marijuana guarded by a five-foot-long alligator.

According to The San Francisco Chronicle, when Alameda County deputies entered a man’s home on Wednesday afternoon, they found 34 pounds of marijuana and the alligator in a large tank in the bedroom.

The Alameda County sheriff says the alligator was likely used as guard against potential marijuana thieves.

The man allegedly purchased the alligator, known as Mr. Teeth, in 1996 in rememberance of the death of rapper Tupac Shakur.
